As I peruse through many of the early FI blogs across the blogosphere, I am somewhat struck to see the number of sell orders that have started to pop up. In years past, most everyone was aggressively hitting the “BUY MOAR!” button, enjoying this wonderful bull market that first took flight in 2009.

Well, as fun as the ride has been, in life, as we all [click to continue…]

A few posts ago, a reader of this site made a very insightful observation — He remarked (and I’m paraphrasing just slightly here):

 

“You embrace macro instead of micro investing, and I’m a believer in this myself but also I’m a believer to make investing easy. 

The Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ” which hold some of your current holdings as well. The return of the index from the beginning of the year is about 117% and your current portfolio has done the same at 113%

What is the point to invest on the micro when you can just buy the index (macro) and enjoy the ride? One operation, $20 cost and it’s done. 

Am I missing out something?”

 

This was a most AWESOME comment, and quite frankly, I’m kind of [click to continue…]

Well, it’s been ages since I last posted an update regarding my rental properties… Truth of the matter is, I just totally hate real estate right now and really see no point in talking about it. For the most part, I’m completely tuned out to the real estate markets, and am simply playing the role [click to continue…]

So, nobody likes to admit to “trying to time the market”, but I will confess to attempting to do just that yesterday morning. As I mentioned in the last article, I had a strong hunch that the Fed would not raise interest rates. Because of that suspicion, I was rather keen on adding some [click to continue…]

Alexco

Just a quick update for readers this morning — I added to my position in Alexco Resource (AXU) yesterday, just ahead of today’s FOMC meeting, when everyone finds out whether or not we’ll be getting a rate hike this month (my guess is no way, Jose). I picked up [click to continue…]

In an era of Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) and Negative Interest Rate Policy (NIRP), it’s no wonder that everyone and their grandma is starved for yield these days… Unlike years (decades) past, saving money and putting it in the bank is just extremely unrewarding… The returns are so anemic, that unless you were depositing millions of dollars in principal to your savings account, there’s just no [click to continue…]

Uranium – The Worst Bear Market Ever?

by FI Fighter on September 19, 2016

in Uranium

yum-1

Last year, I thought that the bear market in precious metals was just about as bad as any that I have ever seen in my life. As I have often emphasized in the past, being able to buy up assets for pennies on the dollar should make any investor feel like a kid in the candy store. For certain, in September 2015, I was having the time of my life scooping up [click to continue…]

Over the past few months, I had previously decided to only share my best new ideas with subscribers of this blog, along with my buy/sell orders. However, due to the profound increase of interest in both the precious metals (gold/silver) and clean energy (lithium/graphite/cobalt) space, lately, I’ve had to re-assess my stance on this…

In general, I first made the switch because I wanted to [click to continue…]

Birimian

These days, I’m not much more than a “one trick pony”. As I have mentioned on numerous occasions, when it comes to investing ideas, there really aren’t that many things out there that I like right now… In the world of mining stocks, I feel like one of the best deals remaining is junior explorer, Birimian Limited (BGS.AX/EEYMF), which is primarily a [click to continue…]
